Epic Failure Trilogy
Mechanical Failure (#1)
“MECHANICAL FAILURE by Joe Zieja is a funny story about a funny man in a funny universe. What makes this book work so well is the author’s innate ability to paint a sarcastic hero in a ridiculously irrational setting, and allow the reader to laugh along at the absurdity that could become our future.”
“If you like science fiction or laughing (so everyone) then this is a book worth your time and Zieja is an author worth watching, as I expect him to continue making great things.”
“MECHANICAL FAILURE is the perfect tonic for those missing the writing of the comedy sci-fi greats. It is as good as Harrison, Grant and even Adams - highly amusing, clever fiction.”
“Zieja comes to fiction writing with over a decade of experience in military life, and clearly knows his stuff when it comes to the absurdities of profligate bureaucracy. His targets include a frequently unproductive obsession with rules and regulations, bad food, and a system of promotion that rarely leaves the best and brightest running the show. MECHANICAL FAILURE often plays like a sci-fi riff on the 1961 satire Catch-22.”

Communication Failure (#2)
"Slapstick timing and dry wit round out this adventure as it sets things up for the final entry."
"These books are the perfect popcorn entertainment, and I recommend them if you’re looking for some lightness and comedy in your sci-fi."
"With vast improvement to the world and characters, and continued top notch humor, Communication Failure is a sequel that surpasses its previous debut. The story now has me hooked and I am dreading the long wait to find out what happens in the next book."
"Joe Zieja will make you laugh time and again in Communication Failure."
System Failure (#3)
"A great introduction to space opera for novices and a fun time for all."
"Zieja is a man of many talents, and his ability to write a series that is humorous, heartfelt, and smart all at the same time is impressive. These books are one of the hidden gems of the genre"
"Zieja successfully called back to elements of the first book (some I’d forgotten about, some I thought had fully served their purpose) and built on the developments of the second to give this volume a bit more heft and greater stakes. Then he added a great story new to this novel and wrapped up everything in a satisfying and definitive way"
"I enjoyed System Failure and felt it was a good send-off for the trilogy and its characters. It gave me the rollicking, space-faring entertainment I wanted"
